The Fountain city council met on November 6, 2014 at the Fountain City Hall in Fountain, Minn. with all board members present. Also present was city clerk Ronda Flattum, Police Chief Tom Mosher, and local business owner, Elliott Riggott.

Consent agenda items approved included minutes from the October 2, 2014 meeting, treasurer’s report, monthly city bills and monthly fire department bills.

City employee Jon Hanson will perform minor inspections and maintenance on the generators at the WWTP and GSS will perform major inspections every other year at a cost of $535 per unit.

Repairs and new tires for the city plow truck were approved. Septic pumping is done.

Flattum requested the approval of the Records Retention Schedule Resolution. This would allow Flattum go through old records and discard what is obsolete. Motion by Wangen, seconded by Gudmundson, to pass the resolution. The council approved the resolution.

There will be a Fillmore County Economic Development Summit Wednesday, Nov. 19, 2014 in Preston, Minn. Flattum recommended any council members who could attend to do so.

Owner of the Bent Wrench, Elliot Riggott, attended the meeting to learn more of a proposed craft brewery, which would be located in Fountain. The matter was tabled until city attorney Scott Springer could attend a meeting. Riggott stated that he and his wife have no issues if a craft brewery were to open.
